Last week, AVweb asked our readers to tell us how the FAA is doing
(particularly in light of the Air Tour NPRM). You responded with a clear
voice, 450 of you saying that groups like NATA, EAA, AOPA, and the SBA are
important groups for mitigating the FAA's influence and making sure the pilot's
interests aren't lost in the shuffle. That accounted for 79% of our
respondents, with 15% of you taking an even more disapproving stance on the FAA.
Only 6% of respondents (33 people!) said we should give the FAA a chance on NPRM.
